Below are projects that receive financial assistance (in part or entirely) by the Accessibility Construction Fund.
The accessibility construction fund allows the Accessibility Manager, with the help of the Cities’ accessibility advisory committee (COBAAC) and other community groups, fund construction projects whose sole purpose is to improve and increase the accessibility of the cities’ public rights-of-way (i.e. sidewalks and curb ramps). The accessibility construction fund can also improve accessibility by funding the installation of accessible pedestrian (APS) facilities at signalized intersections, install medians with areas of pedestrian refuge, and remove and repair structural barriers found in the City’s public rights of way.
Keep in mind, the accessibility construction fund is NOT the only means the City has to make improvements to accessibility. The City works hard to coordinate projects across all City departments. Thus most city infrastructure projects, funded by various departments, improve accessibility by improving adjacent curb ramps and/or installing sidewalk. This projects page will provide information about infrastructure projects funded by the accessibility construction fund. For information about other City projects please visit the City’s engineering and infrastructure planning department’s (EIPD) website.
Locations of future work and more information will be added to the Citywide Accessibility Improvement Projects webpage as it becomes available.
